    I think the film was spectacular visually and there were so many amazing sets and motion-capture was incredible, however I did not like this film as a whole i think it lacked heart and true emotions. In the end of the film I simply felt exhausted of all the action in the film and I do not think that the director was anticipating that kind of response from the audience. I do not feel that this film was made for the audience but more for Spielberg’s own ego and do not get me wrong, the film is spectacular outside but completely empty inside. Overall, the children will like it if they can manage to sit that long in a chair ad adults will enjoy visual aspects of this film but if you are looking for substance I suggest a different film.

    Waste of time. Add the cost of the unused 3D technology and it becomes a complete waste time and money.
    Spielberg is a master of sequence but has no idea about telling a compelling STORY. I know nothing more about Tin Tin now than I did after the opening credits. What is worst part is I care less too.

    And the animation is that creepy style where the environment is 100% real but the characters look like mutant freaks.

    I think the film was alright but I expected something very different, I think people who are fans of the comic book will be a bit disappointed. I think Spielberg overdid it and the film has way too much action and it is very chaotic and fast paced. Most people will like that but i think less is more and this film should have followed that rule instead of bombarding the audience with non-stop action. I was literally tired by the end of this film and had a huge headache. If you know Herges you know that he was a fan of doing more with less but Spielberg did not grasp that at all. I mean the film looked amazing and motion-capture technology has come very far but this film lacked charm.

    The Adventures of Tintin is the Spielberg film being released this weekend that hearkens back to Spielberg's early days. More specifically, Raiders of the Lost Ark. That's a good thing. Spielberg hasn't been this much fun in a long time, and shows that he can direct animation just as well as live action.

    Tintin is a young reporter who buys a model of a ship called the Unicorn, the real version of which went down with a treasure. The model contains information about the real ships whereabouts, and that sends Tintin on a globetrotting adventure with good guys and bad guys all trying to get to the loot first. This leads to a lot of insane chases and action sequences that take full advantage of the freedom animation brings.

    That's not to say Tintin is perfect. It's a little too busy, and doesn't really allow the audience to take a break. I'm still creeped out by the motion-capture technology, and am waiting for filmmakers who use it to figure out how not to make their characters look like androids. But minor quibbles aside, Tintin is still a lot of fun and worth the time.

    I think the film was pretty good and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is very fast paced and a lot is going on but I did not mind that. I think it is a perfect family film and adults can enjoy it with their children. The film is made very well and the characters are interesting and well developed, the film also has a lot of innovative ideas that are executed very nicely. Fans of the original might be a bit disappointed with this film but I really liked it and do not mind Spielberg’s interpretation. It is truly amazing how far our technology has come and this film is a perfect example of it. Overall, I think this movie was very entertaining and fun to watch and I had a great time.

    This is a film about the adventures of Tintin and Captain Haddock who off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock's ancestor, the film is directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis and Daniel Craig. I think the film was alright, I think Spielberg overdid it a bit and the film has way too much going on, I was exhausted by the end of it. It is almost 2 hours of non stop action and my little nice was way too tired of all of that by the end and started whining which is never good. I do think that the film was charming and very well made but it could have been a bit shorter. I think people were expecting a lot from this film and many will be a bit disappointed but that always happens when you expect too much.
